AWS SDK for Kotlin

Develop and deploy applications with the AWS SDK for Kotlin. The SDK makes it easy to call AWS services using idiomatic Kotlin APIs.

How it works

The AWS SDK for Kotlin simplifies the use of AWS services by providing a set of libraries that are consistent and familiar for Kotlin developers. All AWS SDKs support API lifecycle considerations such as credential management, retries, data marshaling, and serialization. Visit awslabs/aws-sdk-kotlin on GitHub for AWS-focused open-source Kotlin libraries.

How It Works - AWS SDK for Kotlin

Key features

Multi-platform Support

The AWS SDK for Kotlin is multi-platform, with support for JVM and Android environments currently available, as well as other Kotlin-supported platforms coming in future releases.

Familiar Kotlin Experience

The AWS SDK for Kotlin takes advantage of modern Kotlin language features such as Domain Specific Language (DSL) builders, allowing concise and readable configuration expressions. Every API call is asynchronous and runs efficiently in coroutines, yielding to other code while waiting on I/O and optimizing the use of compute resources. 

The AWS SDK for Kotlin has a modular architecture with a separate package published for each service. This allows you to reduce application bundle size and improve application performance by only importing the packages your application requires.
